Visible Image "Behind Every Mask" Card

I am up early and feeling the grunge look today, making this card.  I brayered three colours of Distress Oxides to colour the background (Bundled Sage, Peeled Paint and Iced Spruce).  I then spritzed a stencil/mask (Creative Expressions Skulls) with water and placed it on top of the oxide background, leaving it for a couple of minutes.  I lifted the mask off, dabbed with a kitchen roll and then used my heat gun to dry it off.

I used a Visible Image stamp called "Behind Every Mask" for the bird and the sentiment.  For the foxing spots, I used a Stampin' up stamp from their "Gorgeous Grunge" set, then inked the edges.  Finally, I used a Brusho turquoise to colour the eyes and a white Signo pen.

    1. Thank you Carol. I had hoped the background would be a little more obvious. I'll try with some darker colours, they may give a better result x
